I am highly allergic to corn syrup of all kinds and am very familiar with substitutions. The easiest and least expensive is to make a simple syrup out of sugar and water.
Alternative sweeteners that can be used include molasses, Cane Syrup, maple syrup, golden syrup.
I use Cane Syrup when making nut brittles.
